The CPRN is a multi-disciplinary collaborative that was established to develop a North American clinical registry for quality initiatives (QI) and outcomes research in cerebral palsy. The network has developed the common data elements for all disciplines involved, and is currently incorporating these in the electronic health record systems of the 25+ centres currently involved in the network. This registry will enable clinician researchers to detect practice variation and create quality initiatives to improve outcomes for all patients regardless of where they are treated. Dr. Narayanan is one of the founders of the CPRN and leads its orthopaedic group.
